Was it really 1991 that dugal mcarrison played for us, I thought he was very good for us along with Lee Ellison especially when we beat the poolies.

Yes a great player for our level, pity he didn't stay with us longer, hard to believe it is nearly 30 years ago.

Dugald McCarrison is now 50 years old, dear me time seems to have passed fast.

Him and Ellison were fantastic in that game v's Pools, we took them apart, it was nice of them all to sneak out and meet us on the ring road outside Feethams.

Shame he didn't have the career he looked like he would have.

I think he broke his leg playing for Hamilton. He had a prolific partnership with Gerry Briton for Celtic reserves when he came to us. Sadly like a lot of players who get let go by big clubs their careers seem to hit the skids.

I'm intrigued, onewayup. Of all the players to have played for us over the years why bring Dugald up? Have I missed an anniversary or something? (I do like the idea of a 'random blast from the past' feature on the board though :D )
